If you are on tiktok (like we are) you probably have come across this recipe for “cloud bread“. Super fluffy, fun to make and even more fun to cut into, this cloud bread can be made into any color or flavor. Consisting of 3 simple ingredients, here is how you make the tiktok cloud bread.
Earlier this month, “Cloud Bread” went viral on Tiktok.
Beautiful, fluffy and fun cloud breads were popping up everywhere. With only 2-3 ingredients (depending on if you added sugar or not), cloud bread was for sure one of the simplest ways to bake up this fun treat. Unfortunately so many of the recipes were out of America so the food ingredient measurements were different, so here at Salty Side Dish, we worked through a few to find out how to translate it for our US readers.
We tested two versions and I am publishing the larger more striking of the two. Once you understand the recipe, you can easily alter for bigger loafs, smaller individual servings and interchangeable colors and flavors. Lets get baking!

How to Make a Cloud Bread Loaf
THE PERFECT TIKTOK CLOUD BREAD
Preheat oven to 300 and place a piece of parchment paper flat on a sheet pan. Spray parchment paper with non stick cooking spray.
The key to making cloud bread is getting your egg whites into stiff peaks to bake.
First add 9 tablespoons of liquid egg whites into a bowl. Whisk (or mix on high in a mixer) until the egg whites start to bubble up in mini bubbles.
Add corn starch and white sugar. Combine.
Now mix until egg whites are stiff peaks.
You can do this by hand or a stand mixer, but I really recommend a stand mixer. Making egg whites into stiff peaks takes some time and a regular mixer is easier.
My stand mixer (on high) takes about 10-12 minutes of mixing until ready.
Optionally, add a drop or two of flavor like vanilla and a drop or two of coloring if you would like a colored cloud bread.
Once egg whites are fluffy and stiff (stand on own), add to a sheet pan covered in parchment paper into a round loaf shape.
Place cloud bread in oven on 300 for 25-26 minutes.
The top will be slightly browned (no matter what color you make it) and will be firm to the touch.
Peel slowly from the parchment paper.
As the bread sits, it will fall down and be less puffy, so if you want it puffy, let it cool a few minutes and then dive in.
What does Cloud Bread TASTE like?
I wasn’t 100% sure what it was going to taste like. There are a lot of versions online that people call cloud bread – some that include cream cheese, some that are in replacement for pizza dough or as tortillas. I think because I heard the word BREAD that I mistakenly thought it was going to taste like bread. While the consistency is kinda like a spongy angel food cake is awful fun to play with, it tastes like EGG.
Like lightly sweetened egg.
Some readers have suggested that it tastes good with seasonings and cocoa powder.
Keto Cloud Bread
This recipe as written is NOT considered keto as it has white refined sugar. But you can sweeten with other keto friendly sugars like monkfruit or leave it out entirely.
Just note that this really does taste like eggs, so its best to put in a flavor if you are going to remove the sugar.
